and Machhukántha . Dosaji of Mália was taken prisoner and brought to Morbi by Thakor Jiáji of Morbi in A.D. 1803-4 . In A.D. 1806-7 Bábáji Ápáji tried to conquer Mália for Morbi, from whom he received for his services (though unsuccessful) the village of Hadála. But he failed to reduce Mália, and the Miánás continued their predatory excursions to such an extent that the British Government was obliged in A .D.1810 to send a force against Mália, which took the fort and levelled it to the ground, leaving only the foundations. This force carried off the fort gate and built it into the great gate of Morbi which is called the Navánagar Gate. Many of the stones of the fort of Mália were brought to Náhání Barál under Morbi, and the fort of that village was built therewith. After this humiliation the Miánas remained quiet and have given no serious trouble up to the present day.
